Crispy skinned chicken thighs get some tropical island flair in this sweet-and-spicy meal.
This Blue Apron recipe was my first time using coconut milk powder. I had no idea it came in that form! It added great flavor to the plantains, which made a deliciously sweet, smooth base for the chicken to sit on.
The stewed collard greens were really nice here, too. And I loved how crispy the skin got on the chicken thighs. It was a really nice combination of bold, sweet-and-spicy flavors.
Make sure you hit this with enough salt and lime juice at the end, since the sweetness of the plantains could overwhelm the rest of the flavors. I really enjoyed this dish as-is, but my husband thought it was too sweet.
